about

This album is the second disc off of the album A Voice From Dead Radio, released by UK based label Under The Spire Recordings in 2009. The first disc in the original release collects the three sold out self-released EPs Harrisburg, D+A EP and Pilgrims. The second disc features interpretations, covers and remixes of all the tracks from disc 1, as well as an assembly containing material from all of the other tracks. Since all of the original tracks were made before I started using computer, none of the separate stems for the tracks remained so all that the artists involved had to work with was the finished stereo file of the tracks, and that’s not an easy way of approaching a remix, believe me… I wanna extend a massive THANK YOU to all the artists involved in the making of this. I am forever grateful.

Here’s what Boomkat had to say about some of the remixes:
Pillowdiver opens the album with a take on Harrisburg Pt. 1, whose static waves are stretched out into a more serene, steely format, while it's companion piece Harrisburg Pt. 2 is handled very differently by Zelienople. The Chicago group install a more organic presence on the record, seemingly leaving computer-generated sounds out of the equation and instead favouring a tense, febrile cover of the track dominated by live percussion, effects-treated guitars and brooding background tones. Xela's remix of A comes as something of a surprise. After one or two minutes of fluctuating lo-fi textures you start to hear a 4/4 beat emerging, eventually blooming into a submerged propulsive device that brings to mind a scuzzed-up, cassette-recorded Wolfgang Voigt production. Many of the artists here choose to marry their own voices with the source material - never more literally than in the case of Peter Broderick, who introduces both acoustic guitar and fragmented vocals to A Beacon To Lead Us There. Meanwhile Aaron Martin adopts a similar policy, applying his cello and wordless singing to Our Way Through The Field and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma makes a strong contribution with his noisy, rumbling ambience on D. Further standouts arrive from the reliably excellent Steinbruchel (whose Through Dusk... And Falling Leaves remix is typically pristine and beautifully realised) and Seaworthy, whose quarter-hour A Voice From Dead Radio includes excerpts from every track on the album, condensing the spirit of the original material into a single wonderful tract.
